    1. Only really persevered with this book because of 'Storm Boy' being a so-called classic, and because it's something that my father had to read in school. It's not something that has aged well, and is hilariously bad in some points, particularly the dialogues. Storm Boy, and the first story (the name escapes me) are perhaps work reading, though.

    2. I really only read this because I wanted to re-read The Water Trolley, which I read as a child as a separate book. Apparently these stories were originally published together as The Rim of the Morning, and I can't find evidence that The Water Trolley was ever published separately. Despite this, it's what my memory of thirty years past tells me, and I'm more inclined to believe it than google.

    3. Nice little, easy to read stories, especially when you know they are for the most part, locally set. (South Australia)His characters and their stories are as convincingly real as their environs.

    4. Read this today on my Kindle, mostly while waiting at the doctor. I remember reading this as a child and it was just as great to read it as an adult. Beautiful friendship and love between Strom Boy and Mr Percival. I love the part where they save the men on the sinking boat.

    5. dont usually like short stories as I find the transition from one to the other hard. However really liked this collection and didnt seem to have that problem :)
